the KTH in Stockholm, with the goal to promote interdisciplinary
education and research in the field of Sound and Music Computing
(SMC). The School is aimed at graduate students working on their
Master or PhD thesis, but it is open to any person carrying out
research in this field.

* 3 hours of oral presentations by the participating students
and discussions on their research work.
* poster presentations by the participating students during
coffee breaks (1.5 hour every day of the School)
* 12 hours hands-on activities by the participating students
in collaboration with the teachers of the Summer School
* 4 hours of oral presentations and discussions by experts
from industries in the field of Sound and Music Computing.
* 2 hours of oral presentations by leaders of EU funded
projects in the field of Sound and Music Computing.
The lectures are designed to be of interest to any graduate
student or researcher in the field of Sound and Music Computing.
The topics chosen for this year are Neurosciences and Music and
Mobile Music Technology; relevant topics in our research fields
which have particular methodologies and research strategies. The
lectures will present these particular methodologies and their
application in Music related problems.
All the participating students will give short presentations on
their current research during a speed-talk of four minutes. The
emphasis will be given on research questions and particularly on
methodological issues related to their research project.
Students will receive a written feedback from the teachers that
should be useful for the continuation of their research.
All the participating students will present a poster about their
PhD work. The posters will be on show for all the duration of
the Summer School, with discussions during coffee breaks.
All students will work on mini-projects focusing on the two
themes of the Summer School. Results of the mini-projects will
be presented on the final day of the School. Mini-projects
will give the opportunity for hands-on activities such as
testing software tools or planning of experiments.
